Course Goals

  • AC analysis of linear circuits to include circuit theorems via classical and transform techniques.
  • Emphasis is placed on the Laplace transform, including use of pole-zero and Bode diagrams to analyze and design circuits, including multiple filters (single pole cascade, Butterworth, Chebychev), and step response circuits.
  • Phasor applications to sinusoidal steady state analysis and AC power.
  • Computer analysis software is used as an aid to circuit analysis.
  • Laboratory program practicing time and frequency domain analysis and design techniques on step response and filter problems.
  • Applications to instrumentation and circuits.
